What Is Early Childhood Education?
Early childhood education (ECE; also nursery education) is a branch of educational theory which relates to the teaching of little children (formally and informally) up through the age of eight (birth through Grade 3). Infant/toddler education, a subset of early childhood education, denotes the education of children from birth to age two. It emerged as a field of study during the Enlightenment, particularly in European countries with high literacy rates. It continued to grow through the nineteenth century as universal primary education became a norm in the Western world. In recent years, early childhood education has become a prevalent public policy issue, as municipal, state, and federal lawmakers consider funding for preschool and pre-K. It is described as a crucial period in a child’s development. It refers to the development of a child’s personality. ECE is also a professional designation earned through a post-secondary education program. For example, in Ontario, Canada, the classifications ECE (Early Childhood Educator) and RECE (Registered Early Childhood Educator) may only be used by registered members of the College of Early Childhood Educators, which is made up of accredited childcare professionals who are held accountable to the College’s standards of practice.

i brought my first child here when he was 4 for preschool and prep for kindergarten. i loved the school and his teacher. Very good, understanding and easy to talk to staff/director. i plan on sending my daughter for the preschool experience also, as soon as she is 4.
As a former employee of A Step Above Academy, I loved my experiences here. The facility was clean and has a learning rich environment. The owners genuinely care about not only each child at the center but also every employee there as well. This was definitely one of the best centers I’ve ever worked at and I highly recommend them whether you are looking for child care or for employment in a child care center.
I needed a place for my Grand kids for a few days and they were very accommodating. This center was very clean, friendly and I felt it was a safe atmosphere.
